    I’m still fighting green color for landscapes. This one turned out not too bad. Prussian blue and Indian Yellow hue by MGraham. They had single pigment orangy yellow PY110 and I wanted to try it.

    Nice work Alex, I agree greens are tricky and can take over a painting, you have left space for light to shine through and this makes your forest work

      Tricky doesn’t describe green color:)

      i can paint good green squares, but when it comes to put green over existing washes it totally changes everything. Especially over desert color landscapes.

    Here are some combinations suggested by Geoff Kersey:

    Cobalt + Aureolin = bright green

    Cobalt + Aureolin + small dab of Raw sienna = medium green

    Aureolin + Ultramarine + Burnt Sienna = dark olive green

    Viridian + Ultramarine + Burnt Sienna = dark green

    Viridian + Cobalt Violet = gray/green

    Raw Sienna + Phthalo (red shade) +Cobalt = light olive green

      Thank you Paula for green color combinations! I wrote them down for my little reminder tips. Without them I just do usual same mistakes over again.

      Nicely painted, Alex. Atmosphere of being in the forest captured well.

      And thank you Paula for your combinations. You know how to make greens sing in a painting looking your latest post!
